I stayed at this hotel for one night mid December whikst working in the area. The hotel is conveniently located at the A66 and A1 junctions near to Scotch Corner Services. Free parking is available and you provide your car registration details at check-in. I arrived mid afternoon and was checked in quickly by a friendly member of staff who... More

I used this hotel whilst travelling North, as a platinum member I was upgraded and given a room at the end of a corridor away from the function rooms as there was Christmas parties on at night, and this made for a good night sleep. The only issue with the room was the heating did not function, but with a... More

We booked this hotel purely as a stopover on our journey but was delighted to find it was a beautiful building and the staff were so friendly and helpful I just couldn't find fault with it.

We stayed here for one night after enjoying a dinner dance in the hotel. We were very impressed by the building which had character but was modern, light and spotlessly clean. The staff were all friendly and very welcoming. They remained calm and positive when there was a short power cut in the area. They decorated the ballroom beautifully and... More

Stopped at this Holiday Inn at Scotch Corner purely for Convenience, however I was pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. The hotel in unusual for a Holiday Inn property in that it is quite unusual looking. However once inside the rooms were clean and large but the highlight of the stay was the staff.

I recently stayed at this hotel whilst travelling from South to North on the A1. It's conveniently located right on the A1, it could do with a sign to show where the car park is as in the dark it can be tricky to see where it is. I thought the hotel was really nice, clean and had some good... More
